Re-post Friday: Langley Exchange Project

This following was sent to me by Township of Langley Planning to post.

Over the coming months, TransLink, the City of Langley and Township of Langley will be working together to design new transit exchanges for Downtown Langley and for Willowbrook.

In the next 20 years, as the population rapidly grows in the South of Fraser, the current downtown Langley exchange is expected to see major growth, requiring a significant number of additional bus layover spaces. The proposed development of two new transit exchange locations is aimed at addressing this growing demand. While each exchange has many similarities, there are unique aspects to each exchange.

We will be conducting separate consultations for each project and will ensure close coordination and communication on both projects. The following four phased approach to the planning and consultation process will take place over the coming months:

Phase 1 – Identify the possible opportunities and constraints for the exchanges

Phase 2 – Gather input on design objectives and evaluation criteria

Phase 3 – Gather input on design of preferred options

Phase 4 – Presentation of final designs

The purpose of the first phase of engagement is to gather input from key stakeholders in advance of the staff design workshop and public consultation. TransLink would like to invite you to participate in either one, or both, of the stakeholder workshops that will take place as follows:

Update: Right now TransLink will be starting the first phase of the project and will be going out for public feedback shortly. I'll keep you post on when that happens.
